Short Bio: I am an artificial intelligence enthusiast. I attended the bachelor course in "Computer Engineering" at the Third University of Rome. After one year of stop from the studies, during which I worked as computer consultant, I started the master course in 'Artificial Intelligence and Robotics' at University of Rome 'La Sapienza'. Originally, I focused on machine learning solutions for computer vision problems and within this context, I was part of a student exchange program. I developed part of my master thesis in Japan, at Tohoku University in Sendai focusing on automotive. Specifically, we developed an autonomous car able to navigate in complex uurban environments. Indeed, my master thesis is about the automatic detection and classification of traffic signs and vehicle localization problem. Within this context, I released a new dataset for computer vision benchmarks and I published my very first paper at an international conference.
After, I started working in the accademia as a researcher at 
the 'Department of Computer, Control and Management, Antonio Ruberti' in 'Sapienza University of Rome'.
In this period, I have been teacher assistant for a bachelor course on robots programming and for a Master course in AI. Moreover, I was part of the S.P.Q.R. team, a robotic soccer team of biped robots since from 2015 to 2016. Since October 2016 I am working at the National Research Council under the supervision of Vito Trianni, PhD. A month later I enrolled in the  PhD program at Sapienza University.

Today my main interests are: Multi-Agent Systems, Swarm Robotics and Dynamic Task Allocation.
